Selina Redux by AdamHughes Selina Redux by AdamHughes
With my messed-up hand, all I can do right now is color., So, I started tarting up the DC Women poster.


WOW. Lotta comments on this one. As for the requests to 'tart up' the rest of the poster.... that's the eventual plan.

I love the coloring of your work. I was wondering what tips can you give me to improve my art? also, what program do you use?

How did you give this .. that realistic look? Awesome job by the way
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jun 11, 2011
Using classic painting techniques, I just added extra layers of detail. More colors, a greater tonal range.

Planning to cosplay this today! I can send you a link to a picture if you'd like. It's lovely and so Selina, how could I resist?

Really cool!

The first selina is the tradicional one? Watercolour?
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2011
No, they're both pen & ink line art colored in Photoshop. The one on the left is just less rendered. :-)

Love your color palette. i started coloring on the regular. Its helped my simple drawings progress even more. Thanks for helping me in more ways than one. Just looking at your work as help me rethink how i draw my females. Alphonso Mucho was a trend setter big time

Ohhhh sooooo beautiful that Selina Kyle! She is worth marrying hehe : )
surrealgreen Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009
I love this look, with the thick lines, and the realistic skin. Gorgeous.
WineWriter Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2009
It's interesting to see the two different coloring styles. I love how style can affect one drawing. The talent doesn't hurt, of course.

Sorry about your hand. I secretly laugh at people who damage their writing hand in school - but only the extra smart people. I'm like Robin Hood - laugh at the rich, pity the poor? Isn't that how it goes? >.> No? Okay, it's probably way better by now. How long did it take to heal?
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Mar 24, 2009
Thanks for the kind words...

The torn collateral ligament in my thumb took about 5 months to heal; it's still sore from time-to-time. My drawing had is about 90% of what it used to be, and I think it'll be that way for the rest of my days.

Thanks again!

OMIGOD - Selina looks beautiful - love the diamonds! I'm so glad you got her in on this poster, and made her stand out in the black. Plus I love her pussy cat :)
zaxof Featured By Owner Mar 4, 2009
It sucks that you won't be doing the Catwoman covers anymore because you gave Selina so much character and expression in those covers. The only reason why I might buy "The Real Power of the DC Universe" is because of how you did Selina. I heard that she wasn't even originally supposed to be there but you couldn't do it without her. Glad you didn't listen. I wish this was a poster or print on its own because it's amazing.
angelboi69 Featured By Owner Feb 19, 2009
You did a amazing job with Selina! I particularly like the way you changed her bustline and dress to latex. Exquisite shine :)
RobBurgess Featured By Owner Feb 15, 2009
This is amazing... I didn't think you could make a fantastic piece look more fantastic, but Damn, this is incredible.... Will it be available as a poster? PLEASE say "yes"...
beaux-artworx Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2009  Professional General Artist
Sorry that i'm so late knowing...but what happened to your hand?? Why is it messed up??

It doesn't show though..EXCELLENT WORK!! :D
AdamHughes Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2009
I took a fall at HeroesCon last July, and tore the collateral ligament in the thumb of my drawing hand. I was unable to draw for 3 months. But I COULD use my mouse, so I was able to finish several assignments that were due by digitally coloring various preliminaries or concept sketches. My hand is about 90% of what it used to be, so everything is pretty much OK now.

Thank you for your kind words.
beaux-artworx Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2009  Professional General Artist
I'm just glad you're fine now... :D
I have long admired and followed your work..
Your illustrations seems so alive..

I am humbled and inspired by your reply...Thank you so much! :D
Take Care...
